So far I'm running about 8 mil PPD.

2x 1080 TI FEs, 1x 1080 and a 1070 are running at 50% power limit due to all 4 in one machine and trying to keep under 80C (runs around 75C). While Still a bit warm for my tastes I had limited time messing with that machine and wanted to have it atleast running. I will be revisiting that machine in 3 months, adding risers or putting 2 into a different machine.

Otherwise, I have 4x 1080 TIs, 4x 1070s and a 1060 cranking out full volume. And I have 1x 1070 and 1x 1060 to install still. Its probable I will beef up these 1060s to something better but atleast for the time being I have them.

Pushing towards my 10mil PPD goal.


I'll get around to pictures soon.

Yeah - you are cranking out some SERIOUS ppd!

I looked at my folding status this morning and saw you on my threat list. I was like Who The Heck is this?????

Fold on!

There you are. Currently 23.6 years to overtake. I'm sure you'll get that number down very quickly.

:clap:

Fold on!

Gonna spend a few minutes now and punch out full system specs for giggles.

I do wish I did not go with such a beast CPU for 40 lanes.... the i7-6850K. It works just as good as the Xeon E5-2603v3 I got on ebay. Basically the same chip only no HT, half clocks, half the power and at a fraction of the cost.

Rig1

i7-6850K attached to an EVGA FTW K with 8GB DDR4-2400
Seagate 7200.1 250GB
EVGA Supernova 1300W
Corsair Carbide Air 540 box

Folding with:
2x 1080 Ti FEs (MSI and nVidia)
1x 1080 MSI Gaming X
1x 1070 Gigabyte Windforce

Rig2

Xeon E5-2603v3 attached to a refurb Gigabyte GA-X99-SLI with 8GB DDR4-2133
Seagate 7200.1 250GB
Thermaltake DPS-G 1200W
Xigmatek UTGARD box

Folding with:
2x 1080 Ti Gigabyte Gaming OC

Rig3 (also my sig/work machine)

i7-5820K attached to an MSI X99A-SLI-PLUS with 16GB DDR4-2400
850 EVO SSD 500GB w/various others
Thermaltake Toughpower 1050W
Antec 900 box that I reconditioned to a matte black. It was a rusty mess from so much sitting dust and humidity.

Folding with:
2x 1080 Ti EVGA Black Edtion

Rig4

Ryzen 5 1600 attached to an ASRock x370 Killer SLI/ac with 8GB DDR4-2400

That's an awesome setup.

I just have one concern, and anyone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think running the system with the motherboard sitting on the antistatic bag is a good idea. Some of those bags can be conductive and may cause issues.

Correct. Anti-static bags do conduct along the outside thus protecting what is inside. Be careful.

You're really doing some damage out there. WOOT!

Well no, the bags are 3 layers, plastic aluminum plastic, the aluminum is so thin you can see through it. But you still need to be careful that the bottom of the MB does not poke through to the aluminum layer. Oh the plastic is a plastic that does not generate static.

Wow I'm sure glad you pointed that out! Its rare I do this but makes total sense. Fixed that issue now :thup:


I am running most everything with +100 core clock and fans between 35 and 80 to hold around 69C +/- 5 variance.

Not sure what I would gain points wise on specific causes... but for now I will be running fahcore_21/parkinsons.

That old Q chip manages to run the 1060 alright. Only puts out around 300K PPD, both I have are the 6GB modelwhich according to the internet yields a few more points.
I also tried a 1070 but it didnt seem to handle it very well.

Found another board that really pushes the limits mixing old hardware with a modern GPU.

So that makes it folding Rig #8..

Q9550 attached to an old HP (Asus) motherboard with 2GB DDR2-800
WD 7200 HDD 320GB
Allied 350W

Folding with a 1070 Gigabyte Windforce

With that running core_21 WU 10496 I am getting 505-535K PPD on the readout so there doesnt appear to be too much loss. I will try swapping the 1060 thats with my Q9650 and try to squeeze another 200K PPD out of it. It didn't look happy before but I didn't give it much time.

I see you teetering between 8 and 9 million ppd. WOOT!

Yup! this will have to do for now. Everything has been stabilized so what you see is what it'll be for the next few months. Rig1 is hugely inefficient, again all are set to 50% power (due to heat) so the whole thing only produces 2.5 or so million. the Ti's alone should be making that. So Ill get that split up and squeeze out a little more around the end of August. :cool:

I can't believe that I just thanked Whitehawk. What is the world coming to?

Frazier, you are really tearing up the page 1 charts. 27 spots last week 22 this week. You're creating a lot of red on the page. ;)

Good point.. well, at least for now I wanted get up to 1 billion at around 10m PPD for the thrills of running some beast hardware at full load and help get T32 up the ladder... (( As well for the cause :) ))

When that goal is achieved.. I may take a few cards down to play with the hardware a little (never tried SLI, but own an HB bridge..) and although I do not play games, I do have an Oculus that sits in it's box.. so naturally I am curious to see what a few 1080 Ti's can do for some visual feels. Besides that however, I will continue to fold for as long as I can at various rates.
